Item description for Science Solitaire: Essays on Science, Nature, and Becoming Human by Maria Isabel Garcia...
"Science Solitaire" is a mind dance with nature's cards, in a style and lens that could help us see that science is alive - as it inhabits not just classrooms and textbooks but also our everyday lives. It consists of pieces of discovery that try to reveal the possible connections between the snippets of understanding we gain from science and our journey toward becoming human. What happens to our brains when we are happy, when we delight in music or food or other pleasurable pursuits? What lurks behind the awesome powers of some creatures with whom we inhabit this planet? What is e=mc2 and why is it the most popular icon for scientific ideas?
